I am going to assume that it’s in everyone’s best interest that I am able to be online while in Europe. Admit it – you want to read my updates and tweets about pay toilets and queuing and baguettes while I’m gone. There are other reasons to stay connected too – the internet often tells me where I am when I can’t figure it out on my own, and the Find My iPhone app will be fantastic if (when) the three of us get separated. Plus, Instagram. If I had internet, you could follow my adventures on Instagram and it’d almost be like you were in London and Paris with us. There is absolutely no downside to my having 3G in Europe.
So, how do I make that happen?
I know I need to get a UK sim card; one that has a data plan. Hell, it can only have a data plan for all I care – I don’t use the phone locally; I’m sure not gonna use it while having Fancy Adventure Times overseas. I’ve heard from several sources that I’ll need a sim card cutter to make the card micro sized, if I’m not able to get one already made tiny. That can be Amazon’d or eBay’d with ease, but it’s the getting a pre-paid UK sim card part that is confounding me – how do I make it go? I’ve been directed to several UK carriers that have EXACTLY what I need (by the way, $7 for unlimited data is disgusting – we are getting so ripped off in Canada), but they don’t ship internationally or accept non-UK credit cards.
What’s the best way for me to go about getting three iPhone 4 UK sim cards with data only?
